Who is Purina?
Purina has been providing great-tasting and nutritional food for cats and dogs for over 125 years. Founded in 1894 by George Robinson, Willian Andrews, and William H. Danforth, they changed their name to Purina in 1904 and have never looked back. Since then, they have continued to research how high-quality nutrition can help pets to live longer, happier lives with the people who love them. Purina believes that nutrition comes from understanding nutrients, not just ingredients, and pet nutrition remains the focus of all their innovation and products to this day.
What our customers think of Purina
Good quality food which helps to manage my dog’s sensitive digestive system
Excellent for the needs of my cat. She is old and was getting sick on normal high street food. Since giving her this she's back to herself.
I wish we'd discovered this dog food earlier. Having struggled to feed our Estrela Mountain Dog for years, our vet recommended Purina Pro Plan. Not only did our dog love it, but it pretty much put an end to her frequent stomach upsets. Another bonus is that it's also much less expensive than the previous food.
Good product, recommended by our vets, to help puss with a stomach problem.
In 2018, Purina launched the Purina Institute to create a global space where veterinary professionals and scientific thought leaders can work to find ways to help pets live better lives through their ground-breaking research. Their team includes a group of nutritionists, veterinarians, behaviourists, immunologists, chemists, molecular biologists, food scientists, palatability experts, and specialists in genomics and bioinformatics.

Purina Feeding Guide
There are a number of factors that affect how much you should be feeding your pet, including their size, age, activity level, and even breed. It is recommended that you feed your pet at consistent times to help them maintain a healthy digestive system. This is typically done by splitting the appropriate daily allowance between two meals at least 12 hours apart. Each Purina pet food will have a different recommended feeding amount, so check the package to be sure your pet is getting everything they need.
Every Purina pet food comes with a general feeding guide on the packaging that can be worked out based on your pet’s body weight. For a healthy adult dog, for example, the guide is as follows.
- 3 to 12lbs - ⅓ to 1 cup
- 13 to 20lbs - 1 to 1 ⅓ cups
- 21 to 35lbs - 1 ⅓ to 2 cups
- 26 to 50lbs - 2 to 2 ⅔ cups
- 51 to 75lbs - 2 ⅔ to 3 ⅓
- 76 to 100lbs - 3 ⅓ to 4 ¼
- 100lbs+ - 4-¼ plus ¼ cup for each 10 lbs of body weight over 100 lbs
The amount differs per animal - Cats have different requirements for how much they eat in a day. For a healthy adult cat, as an example, the guide is as follows:
- 2 to 4kg - 30 to 60g
- 4 to 6kh - 60 to 90g
- 6 to 8kg - 90 to 120g
If your pet has any specific health requirements that may affect the amount of food they should be given, then make sure to consult with your vet for a more precise guide.
